It... urm doesn't really get much clearer than what's written in the 

But I will attempt to clarify anyway:

The reason why we crosslink in the book is so we keep what things that 
were in the host system out of the system being built. the crosslink we 
perform however isn't really a true crosslink but the way we do it 
convinces the compiler to act as if we were building for a different 
platform entirely thus keeping the host and target seperate.
